Ta-done! On Feb. 29th I started this project, and on Wednesday this week I finished it. My handy spreadsheet tells me that is 65 days from start to finish.
Sometimes you have the perfect backing in your stash.
And some pictures of the quilting. I loved how this puffed up a lot but then I pressed the heck out of it and I loved that too. Would love to see what this looks like after a wash.
Fabrics: ombre from white to black. Probably around 15? colours and brands of solids. all from stash.
Binding: as above, using the No-tails binding tutorial from Linda at Flourishing Palms
Tutorial: Modern Hexies, from a different Nicole, at Modern Handcraft
Quilting: walking foot with clear invisible poly.
And a fun picture of mid-way through the binding process.
Linking up of course with the fabulous Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts! Happy weekend everyone.
This was on my list for the 2nd quarter of the finish along.
Do you remember the bit in the Sound of Music when Maria has escaped the convent and she’s in the hills, twirling and singing “the hills are alive”?
That’s how I feel about quilt shows.
Hung my guild’s display at the bigger VQG show today.
I’ll let you guess which one I am.
Earlier today I started the binding…
And tonight I stitched the binding down. It’s been a while since I hand stitched a binding. Like a whole year since my last.
Good think I was going to trim the borders off. Thank you children for the additional conté crayon smudges.
Finished pictures on Friday.
Linking up with The Needle and Thread Network!
Modest achievements today…figured out some technical details for the binding, and prepped all the paperwork for our guild display at the show this weekend. Things like a sign for every quilt, email signup sheets, blah blah boring blah. I did get an epic amount of stuff done so that feels good. And had an overdue haircut. Yay!
